The Front Range will get a break from the heat on Friday, but heavy rains and possible flooding are expected to come along with it.
Flash Flood Watches were set to take effect for the Front Range, the Foothills as well as the Larimer and El Paso County burn scars from noon to 8 p.m. (noon-8pm). The Black Forest Fire burn scar is under and an extended Flash Flood Watch, which will last from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday's storms were are expected to move into the Front Range before the lunchtime hour and stay through the majority of the night. The storms are expected to be slow moving and likely to produce heavy downpours at times -- 1 to 1.5 inches of rain possible in the span of 45 mins, so we're keeping an eye for localized flooding and flash floods in the Burn Scar Areas.
It appears that areas of Boulder County are likely to get the greatest amount of rainfall, with 2.2 inches predicted for the Jamestown area.
Another chance of thunderstorms is in the forecast for Saturday afternoon, but a dry and hot weather pattern will return as we go into the next workweek.AlertMe
